  • Me and my big ears


    I was born with the nickname Al. My aunts chose to call me Al, after Al Tantay na sikat daw 20 something years ago. Growing up, my play mates use to call me "al-alya", an Ilocano word for ghost. I really had no problems with that.
    Then they started calling me lapayagan because of my bigger than the normal size ears. Lapayagan is an Ilocano term used to call someone with "big ears". I thought that's synonymous to being ugly so I hated it when they tease me because of that.

    As a teen, I've tried to hide them. Thanks to my theeek hair. I've been sporting a long hair ever since even with a "no proper haircut - no exam" policy back in high school. All just to hide my ears.

    Two years ago my brother in law and I decided to get a hair cut. It was December and was freezing cold in Baguio, and out of nowhere we decided to go bald. My friends liked it. For some reasons, no one noticed my ultra big ears anymore.


    Kaya ayun, kalbo ulit ako.

      pag malaki ang tenga mo, mas malaki din ang masagap na soundwaves, kaya kahit mahinang alingasngas ay maririnig mo.hehehe.

      Hello Ely! Kung pagmamasdan ang iyong letrato, hindi naman malaki ang iyong tenga. Haha. Parang ang sagwa ng structure ng statement. Anyway, mabuti at nagustuhan ng mga tao ang iyong new haircut. Try mo kayang mag earings? Lol.
